Faculty Spotlight (March 12), David Lumpp and Mark Schuler will speak at our March F-Spot: Tuesday, March 12 @ noon [LTC: Open Classroom Space–main floor]
Publishing House recently released a two-volume systematic theology, Confessing the Gospel: A Lutheran Approach to Systematic Theology. The section on theological prolegomena was written primarily by our own Dr. David A. Lumpp, professor of Theology and Ministry. The first dogmatics published by the Missouri Synod in nearly a century, this book seeks to demonstrate this Lutheran approach to confessing the gospel not only with respect to its content, but also with respect to the method of its presentation. Each chapter is structured around five building blocks—scriptural foundation, confessional witness, systematic formulation, historical and contemporary developments, and implications for life and ministry. Dr. Lumpp will discuss his contribution to these two important volumes at our March Faculty Spotlight: Tuesday, March 12 @ noon [LTC]
CONVOCATION: Andy Steiner
date: March 20
topic: “Everyday Heroes”
where: Buetow Auditorium
Andy Steiner is an award-winning journalist, editor, and freelance writer. Her articles have appeared in many national and regional publications including Minnesota Monthly, Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Every Day With Rachael Ray, Utne Reader, Ms., Glamour, Mademoiselle, Self, Modern Maturity and the Toronto Sun. She is currently the mental health and addiction reporter for MinnPost.
To help CSP observe Disability Awareness Month, Andy Steiner will talk about young people who have worked to overcome mental health issues. In her recent book, How to Survive: The Extraordinary Resilience of Ordinary People, Steiner explores resiliency in the face of such difficult life events as the death of a spouse, the loss of a child, the distress of bankruptcy, the trauma of a heart attack, and more.
Andy’s refreshing take on emerging trends and unique characters has earned her a reputation as a writer who is excited about turning quirky subjects into strong features. A sample includes a look at Midwestern butterfly ranchers, a visit to a Vietnamese fortune-teller, and a profile of a ferret shelter director. She has also written a personal account of a transsexual’s wedding, a look at the renewed interest in the Jewish ritual bath, and an ode to the disappearing wash-and-set hair salon.
Ms. Steiner is a Minnesota native. She earned an undergraduate degree in English, history, and journalism from Macalester College in St. Paul. In 1992, after completing a M.A. at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, Andy returned to her home state, where she became editor of the Minnesota Women’s Press, one of the nation’s oldest feminist newspapers. In 1997, she joined the staff of Utne Reader, where she became the youngest person to hold the position of senior editor. There Andy brought a fresh take to the magazine with her work assigning and editing cover sections, supervising production of front-of-the-book departments, and feature writing.
